-americans. followup on last night's story about the obama administration urging defense contractors not to issue legally required layoff notices despite impending cuts due to the budget impasse. known as the sequestration. mike emanuel has the update. >> by law they're required to issue layoff notices to employees they may need to cut if the half trillion in automatic cuts known as sequestration take effect january 2. the obama administration told contractors they don't need to follow the warn act issuing layoff notices 60 days out and offered to pay for legal bills if the contractors are later sued. one legal expert says it's not following the spirit of the law. >> the administration is saying until it gives the companies specific numbers, it's not triggered. ultimately, the administration would likely prevail but it would be a close question. >> the warn act designed to protect "workers, fair families and communities requiring employers with 100 or more employees to provide 60 calendar days advance written notice of plant closing and mass layoff affecting 50 more employees at single site of em

to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm t
. he points to the obama administration ideology being at fault both before the attack and afterwards. that's important to understand. before the attack we clearly didn't suspect it was coming. that's due to an intelligence failure in the sense we looked for information and couldn't get it or if the ideological reason applied they didn't think we needed to ask for the information. al qaeda has been defeated, the war on terror is over, libya is a great success, what could go wrong. obviously it did go wrong. but if the administration from the top down isn't processing reality, this is the kind of tragedy you get. bill: you are pinpointing the ideology. so this was their mental thinking about the condition of the arab world or that region or libya specifically do you think? >> i think very broadly. it goes to president obama's view of america's place in the world. it's a corollary to what he thinks america' domestic structure looks like. it made him in the case of libya and kay row and elsewhere -- libya and cairo and elsewhere in the region to see the islamists' rise. it was a brother

overruled the decision, granting the obama administration a temporary stay. at least 25 people have been killed and 70 wounded in the syrian city of aleppo. the attack took place in a city square. most of the victims were syrian military. in bahrain, clashes erupted on tuesday at the funeral of a protester jailed last year. the victim suffered sickle cell disease and demonstrators say that he died after being denied medical care. the unrest broke out after the police stopped a crowd of thousands of mourners to march to the center of the uprising. a u.s. border patrol agent has been shot dead and another wounded at the border with mexico. the agents were on patrol when they came under fire. a new government report has found an intelligence program that formed a major part of domestic counterterrorism efforts in the united states has been almost entirely of the recess. a bipartisan report examines the network of so-called fusion centers created after the 9/11 attacks to create intelligence sharing among local, state, and federal authorities. investigators have accused the centers as being
that the obama administration's policies had left the middle east a more dangerous place than it was four years ago. i can't wait to ask you about that, richard. >> fair enough. >> that speech was fascinating. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they will get to it as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied with the president 47% to 47%. just a month ago, the president had a 56-38 advantage with women voters. what's going on? >> let's st
of working with them. >> one of the aspects of the obama administration is how much politics has been driven from the white house. some politicians give lip service but obama seems to have gone pretty for the other way. with romney, how do you think he would resonate in terms of the department's between the white house with more >> we have strayed some distance from constitutional government. in a sense, the white house staff has been built up with layers of folks who sort of cushioned the president from the departments and agencies. just being a low-level staffer under reagan, and seen the universe of high-profile cabinet members have interacted, at least from what i could see, more directly with the president, and now we have players that kind of cushion the president. a deputy chief of staff for policy or whatever the case may be. i think we are drifting farther and farther away from that interaction that i think is so important to good government. the president's interacting with the cabinet. i don't know that obama is going to change that. that is his operating style. it was similar to
of the obama administration not to deal with the housing crisis as part of the financial collapse. >> very much so but you have to remember he inherited the problem. bush hadn't even talked about it. obama said let's do something. but then what they proposed was simply inadequate. >> rose: was it because they focused on the financial sector at the exclusion of the housing issue? >> basically, basically. part of it was they were worried at the time that the kinds of things you needed to do. restructure the mortgage, write down the mortgages, would weaken the banking system. and they were more focused on helping the bankers than homeowners. you know, ode citizens. and i think that was a big mistake. >> rose: when you look at 2008 and the decisions made first by the bush administration, paulson, bernanke, geithner and later decisions by the president, summers and geithner and others or bernanke, were the right decisions at the time to deal with the financial crisis to avoid going over into some abyss? >> they prevented us from going into the abyss, i think that's right. >> rose: so what they did w
certain forms of aid better than oh not that the state department or the obama administration doesn't care about all dimensions of the development landscape. but that the state department has recognized that there are core competencies that it has that others don't. and then that is what it should be doing. and i think we are seeing more of that in the private sect tear where companies are thinking about not only having corporate responsibility a way in which it gives dollars away but really understanding that it has expertise that can help nonprofits or community organizations use more resources they have more efficiently and effectively and more sustainably. >> when you think about the legacy of your parents a legacy that you inherit, how do you prepare for that? >> well, i hope my parents are going to be alive for a really long time. >> he's planning to work with her according to what he said to me yesterday. >> yes. >> to work for her or with her, i'm not sure which he's planning. >> well, arguably he's been doing both a long time. >> so he has experience there. >> yes, indeed. i mean

he's done before. >> and this this clearly romney prosecuted obama's administration better than obama defended it tonight. >> and there is first i'm fan nate bid comments. two things i want to ask this focus group. and the first is that this is a very different amp yain than the president ran in 2008. and hope, change, and optimism z he's running a campaign now using class warfare saying republican splan for dirty skpair water and kids with autism and down's syndrome ask elderly will fend for themselves. this negate, did this debate ding romney and obama head to head did this negate this false narrative the president has been advance something did they get the sense that obama cannot run on his record because we have fewer americans working, $6 trillion in debt and 49 million on food stamps? >> and this is hard to defend a failed record like he has. romney came out and set forth clear points about how to turn the economy around and create job autos there is a difference between leadership and management. and romney is a leader in obama tried to manage this thing. >> it's an interestin
into effect during the obama administration to try to reach out to minority groups. that's a worthy goal, but you don't do it with taxpayer money when it's irrelevant to the mission of the agency. frankly, it's something to be done in a different way. >> this has a gsa feel to it. it has nothing to do with the ag department's mission. it's wasting taxpayer money. the whole idea having people chanting, larry, is so offensive to me. these are federal employees. these are adults. i can't -- someone has to investigate this. this one really smells. >> absolutely. it creates animosity between the races. it doesn't help anything. it actually makes it worse. >> it sends the wrong message at the very least. alarry, thank you very much. >> you're welcome. >>> we asked the usda for a statement. here's what they told us. quote, usda offers a number of optional workshops and professional development opportunities in order to help employees better serve our customers. the suiter and those sessions were designed to foster overall diversity awareness and not to focus on a minority group and receive posi
of the past four years in the obama administration is how much policy has been driven from the white house. some presidents at least give lip service to cabinet government and empowering their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious, one, in a second obama term was a continuation of the pattern, and with romney how do you think he would run things in terms of the relationship between the department and the white house? governor. >> i think we've strayed some distance from constitutional government in the sense the white house staff has been built up with layers of folks who kind of cushion the president from the departments and agencies. so i compare and contrast just by being a low-level staffer under reagan on the advanced staff, and seen that the universe of high profile cabinet members who interacted at least from what i can see, more directly with the president. and now we have layers that kind of cushion the president, a deputy chief of staff for policy or whatever the case might be. and i think we're drifting farther and farther away from that
said about half the energy companies supported by the obama administration going bankrupt. he didn't actually mean that. sort of rolled over from democratic and liberal bewilderment last night that mr. romney was abandoning his main economic plan that he was running on, his $5 trillion tax cut plan, his big trickle-down plan, to be rolled over from democrats being bewildered about that to the beltway press and mainstream pundits i think now having a hard time deciding whether they are supposed to call that a lie or whether they're supposed to just say this is a radically new position for the candidate and welcome to it. joining us now, jonathan alter, columnist for "bloomberg news" and msnbc political analyst. mr. alter, great to have you here. >> hi, rachel. >> how does president obama counter the strategy of mitt romney's to unveil whole new ideas or deny he ever held the ideas that he plainly has held? it's one thing to have a truth squad fact checking online. how do you counter that at the podium? >> one is i'm rubber, you're glue, bounces off and sticks to you. trickle-down, t
obama administration, it might not come to pass, but they are getting their spending priorities in order. >> look. the thing that the president is very clearly doing in this reelection campaign is being a very vague. well democrats accuse mitt romney of being vague, the president has intentionally talked only in general about the need for infrastructure and other stimulus kind of spending and the need for what he says will be a tax increase on top earners to pay for it. when you get down to specifics you don't need -- you don't hear very much about what it would be. part of the reason for that is that the president knows that there are a lot of people with their hands out, the people with ideas for how that money ought to be spent. one concern that he has aside from frightening moderate voters with more spending is creating this line up at the trough for lawmakers from his own party it will be looking for the second term to be even more lavish than the first. neil: to you think that will be the case? >> i think it could be. based on what these democrats have already lined up in terms of
intact and the number of new gun laws enacted by the obama administration adds up to exactly zero. finally, the prediction about how the president would respond to captured terrorists. quote, terrorists captured overseas are given full trials in the u.s. court system, and they have to be allowed access to a number of government secrets to prepare their defense. well, actually government secrets to prepare a defense, i don't think so. here is a secret for you, the top terrorist, osama bin laden, is dead. >>> no doubt if the president wins re-election those and other far right scenarios will get a new luster for the second term. because fantasy leads to more fantasy. >>> up next, the big debate last night between elizabeth warren and scott brown. well, who won that one? that was a top of the card. who lost and what does it mean for the battle sfor the senate? you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. if we want to improve our schools... ...what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ...nothing tra
and this just isn't enough? >> that's, of course, why the obama administration is not spiking the ball tonight. but we are finally beginning to clean up the mess that was created under the bush administration and the blind eye that was turned to wall street, and, of course, romney is trying to change his story, too. in the debate he said, oh, i'm not against regulating wall street. really? they're for repealing the dodd/frank bill, creating the stage that would actually take us back to where we were at the hemorrhaging of jobs. we're finally beginning to turn the corner. >> when we look at what we saw on wednesday night, the president certainly under fire for this less than dynamic performance, some questioning whether he entered this debate under prepared and over confident. as we pointed out at the top of the show, you are vice chair of the obama campaign, did you president underestimate his opponent and did it take the wind out of your sails for the work you're doing for the president to get re-elected. >> i'll tell you what, it's really hard to argue against somebody who shows up with tota
with a collective eye roll from people who are democrats and republicans. is there any way the obama administration could actually have cooked up these numbers? >> uh, in a short answer, i would say no. i think the last president who was accused of, and where there was evidence that he tried to mess with the bureau of labor statistics was richard nixon. since then, it is a bureau full of professionals and i think that jonathan is exactly right. we would know if there was some funny business going on there. not to mention that if they were going to cook the books, wouldn't they have done it months ago when it would have more of an impact, and wouldn't they have said the unemployment rate is, i don't know, 4%. it seems extremely far fetched. i would be shocked if we eventually discovered they had played some role in it. >> jonathan allen and anne, thank you for joining us today. stick around, we'll see you later on this hour p. >>> was mitt romney really a bipartisan governor in massachusetts? one of his old political foes joins us in the next hour. >>> and who does michelle obama think should play h
critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the number one geopolitical foe of the u.s. promised to the surprise even of his own advisers. he has continued to emphasize that and to say that vladimir putin will get nothing from me. barack obama has emphasized as one of his major foreign-policy accomplishments a reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, whether it is sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a much more significant issue as there have been problems with pakistan that made it difficult for us to get in and out, or having a new nuclear arms limitation agreement with russia. so that's a substantive difference. there are others as well. when it comes to some of the core middle east issues, how to st
saying the numbers must have been manipulated by the obama administration and that the unemployment rate couldn't really be below 8%. jon stewart weighed in. >> it's got to be corrupt political manipulation of the official statistics. what else would explain why after unemployment has been steadily declining for the last year that now suddenly right before the election it declines a little more? please. >> a lot of people are saying that the government's cooking the books here. >> i'll tell you these guys are saying they feel like they cooked the books. >> look, i got to say, if you're cooking the books, 7.8% unemployment is a [ bleep ] recipe. it's like the radish stew of jobless numbers. if you're cooking, make a nice jambalaya, something nice for people. unemployment is 2.6%. everybody, now we're getting -- >> enough said. with the election just weeks away, positive news about the economy ignites desperation among angry republicans. >>> last time i told you about republican congressman paul broun, the member of the house science committee who called things like evolution and even the
